Recipe: Easy Cookies & Cream Rocky Road (Gluten Free!)

Easy Cookies and Cream Rocky Road Recipe - gluten free, candy, homemade gift ideas, valentines day gift ideas

This Cookies and Cream Rocky Road Recipe is easy to make, gluten free and the perfect homemade gift alternative to store-bought candy for Christmas, Easter or Valentine’s Day. White chocolate, milk chocolate and gluten free Oreos combine to make this simple treat. 


Rocky Road is something we make every Christmas (particularly this Kid Friendly Rocky Road Recipe), but recently, I realised that rocky road shouldn't be something I only make at Christmas time. 

So, I thought... why not create a rocky road recipe for every holiday? With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I wanted to come up with a simple rocky road recipe that would be the perfect homemade Valentine's gift - and I think I've come up with the perfect one!

This Cookies and Cream Rocky Road is SO easy to make, and seriously delicious to make... and I'm pretty sure it could make someone fall in love with you. 

I mean, isn't chocolate the way to most people's hearts? Or is it just Jesse and I who would do anything for chocolate?

Best of all? It's one of those homemade treats that can look really impressive - but is actually so simple even the worst cooks could perfect it. 

Package it up in a box with some cellophane or pop it into a pretty jar and tie it up with some ribbon. It's a simple, easy homemade gift that everyone will love.

Oh, but do make sure you make a little bit extra to save for yourself... otherwise you won't want to give any away 😛 (I may or may not have hid the photographed batch at the back of the fridge so Jesse didn't know it was there... ahem....)

So let me share the recipe with you! >>
